MTN8 1st Leg Semi-finals Review

This past weekend, all eyes were on only two fixtures as the focus fell on the MTN8 first leg semi-finals. With a somewhat startling line-up, Orlando Pirates more than held their own against Mamelodi Sundowns and will feel they should have come away with something at Orlando, while the Tshwane giants also had some big moments, although they were few and far between. Kaizer Chiefs were expected, in some quarters, to walk all over AmaZulu FC, but it was not to be as Gabadinho Mhango found the opener in the 14th minute, before Keagan Dolly levelled matters deep in the second half. It was a match filled with lots of drama long after the final whistle had blown. With the dust having settled, and the weekend of October 22-23 looming on the horizon, Soccer Laduma reviews the two encounters with the help of various role-players in the local football fraternity.      

Vusumuzi Vilakazi Interview

A gigantic task of leading Golden Arrows and saving the club from what could have easily been an embarrassing season due to a string of poor results didn’t intimidate Vilakazi after he and fellow club legend Mabhuti Khenyeza were handed the coaching reins in the latter stages of last season. Initially, the pair had been appointed on interim basis to see off the season. Despite his limited experience as head coach in the first team, he welcomed the opportunity. After a slow start to the current campaign, Arrows picked up form. In an interview in this week’s Soccer Laduma, Kanu, as the former striker is affectionately known, takes a dim view of the co-coaching arrangement at Mamelodi Sundowns and reveals what he told Pule Mmodi after his failed move to Kaizer Chiefs.  

Bongani Sam Interview

After three years with Orlando Pirates, Sam has been allowed to go and get regular game time at Maritzburg United. So far, he’s done well on loan. In his interview with Soccer Laduma this week, the 25-year-old discusses his move to the Pietermaritzburg outfit and what he plans to achieve through it. The Gqeberha-born player also reveals what he was told by some of his former Bucs teammates after facing them recently and what their words did to him and his confidence. Sam goes on to describe the feeling of being back on the field after so long and what the goal he scored in his first match for the team at Harry Gwala Stadium meant to him.

Lloyd Kazapua Interview

Goalkeepers mature with age, they say. Kazapua has hit stupendous form since the start of the season for Chippa United, winning two Man of the Match gongs in seven starts. In his interview with Soccer Laduma Kwenaite, he reveals how gutted he was after conceding at the death to both Maritzburg United and recently Mamelodi Sundowns. He also reveals what compatriot Peter Shalulile told him after his last-gasp winner in their recent battle, as well as what the Chilli Boys players’ reaction was to news that Daine Klate had been sacked following that match.

Erling Haaland Feature  

Erling Haaland’s £52 million (R1 billion) move to Manchester City in the previous transfer window was met with an air of scepticism as some wondered if his link-up play would suit a team coached by Pep Guardiola. In just three short months, however, those fears seem comical. In City’s 6-3 drubbing of Manchester United last weekend, the 22-year-old scored three times to become the first player in the history of the Premier League to net three consecutive home hat-tricks, while he also became the fastest player to score three hat-tricks in England’s top division. Soccer Laduma analyses the Norwegian sensation’s start to life in what many call the toughest league in world football.

Revolving Column

This week, we hear from ex-Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siyabonga Nkosi as he shares his thought on the weekend action, where his former side failed to capitalise against AmaZulu FC and Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns could not be separated.         


In this week’s edition of the popular Siyagobhoza section, there is news on Khama Billiat’s contractual situation at Kaizer Chiefs, sporting director Flemming Berg’s work bearing fruit at Mamelodi Sundowns, Kwame Peprah’s likely next step at Orlando Pirates, and more…
